Large enough to serve you, small enough to provide the personalized care you deserve.
TRUSTING HANDS HOME HEALTH CARE
February was an eventful month for Trusting Hands. We started out quietly and saw most of our action during the second half of the month.
On February 16, we held our monthly staff meeting at CTS. At this meeting we had a small baby shower in anticipation of the newest Trusting Hands team member who will be appearing in March, thanks to Angela Osgood. Out topic for education were Women and Heart Disease and Stoke. This was an apt topic as February is National Heart Month.
This subject was important as we see many patients with heart disease and stroke, but the
Trusting Hands team is made up of women, who need to know about this serious issue in their own lives. After the education was completed all team members received a Red Dress pin.
On February 25, I presented to the Senior Advocates on Women and Heart Disease and Stoke. In keeping with the heart theme. This was an informational talk to help make people more aware of the number one killer of women. The subject was well received, and I offered to present if anyone had a group or organization they thought might like to hear more on this subject.
Also on the 25th, blood pressure clinics were held at Maple Manor and Pearl Street, where information was handed out on heart disease and participants received Red Dress pins.
On February 26, I had a quarterly meeting with a case manager. At these meetings we review all the patients that we share and make sure that needs are being met. From this meeting we also received two new referrals for patients.
In the month of February we were able to assist five patients with Wishes and Wants, by providing new socks to one patient, who was very grateful. For a second patient we provided a walker and shower bench. We also provided personal care products to three other very happy patients.
Happy, Healthy, Safe at home.
